DAC2 HGC - "Turn the PC into a Hi-Fi Platform"
"Few devices are consistently praised in the audiophile community. The Benchmark DAC1 is one of the chosen few."
"The DAC2 is an entirely new device. It leverages what is one of the world's highest-end DACs, the ESS ES9018, adding to it, among other things, custom jitter-reduction logic."
"It lives up to its Hybrid Gain Control name by implementing separate volume controls: digital for digital inputs; analog for analog inputs."
